Extract all images

You can use Nitro Pro 7 to extract all of the images in your PDF documents into individual image files, which can then be reused in other programs. This process helps you extract images from a range of pages, whole PDF files, or a collection of files.

To extract images from PDF files:

  1. On the Home tab, in the Convert group, and click To Other then Extract Images. The Extract Images dialog appears.

  2. In the Extract Images dialog, do any of the following:

    • In the Files to extract images from section, click Add Files, and then browse to select additional PDF files to include

    • To reorder the documents, select a PDF file in the list, and click Move Up or Move Down.To delete a selected PDF file from the list, click Remove

    • Include all open PDF documents: add PDF files presently open in Nitro Pro 7 to the list and specify all pages

    • To extract images from specific pages in a document, select the document then click Choose Pages. In the Pages field, specify pages separated by a comma, or a page range separated by a dash. For example, to extract images from pages 1, 3, 4, and 5 of an 8-page document, enter 1, 3-5. You can use the page navigation arrows at the bottom of the dialog to preview pages for easier selection

    • To change preferences for default file formats, click Options. Specify the file format for color and monochrome images. If you select Optimal, Nitro Pro 7 intelligently selects the best image file type based on PDF information.

    • In the Output section, select a Folder option to specify where to store the extracted files

    • Open folder after creation: automatically open the destination folder after images are extracted

  3. Click Convert to complete the extraction
